Stephen Colbert took a break from his Comedy Central show on Tuesday to guest host ABC’s Good Morning America and performed a duet with country star Kenny Rogers while he was there.
“The fact that I’m going to sing a duet with Stephen Colbert just really wraps up my life,” the 74-year-old Rogers said before taking the microphone to sing his hit number one song “Islands in the Stream,” which he originally performed with Dolly Parton.
“Islands in the stream / That is what we are / No one in-between / How can we be wrong / Sail away with me to another world / And we rely on each other, ah-ah / From one lover to another, ah-ah.”
“What an honor to play Dolly Parton to your Kenny Rogers,” Colbert said after the a capella performance.
Rogers noted that he was disappointed that People Magazine had included Colbert in their “100 Sexy Men in One Minute” video online in 2011 and was also selected as one of the top sexy “men with glasses” in 2007. (He was also voted Maxim‘s 69th hottest woman in America in 2012, but that’s a different story.)
“You’re the sexiest grandpa,” Colbert replied. “Do you have grandchildren?”
“No, but I do have couple boys who are eight years old,” Rogers explained.
“You do?” Colbert exclaimed. “You got some lead in the pencil, man.”

‘Abuse of power is not a crime’: Former acting AG Matt Whitaker makes a brazen claim on Fox News
Former acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker told a Fox News audience that it is not a crime for President Donald Trump to abuse the power of his office.
Whitaker made the comments while complaining about "global elitists" during an interview with Laura Ingraham.
"What evidence of a crime do you have?" Whitaker asked, despite Trump, acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and defense lawyer Rudy Giuliani all admitting Trump sought foreign election interference to help his struggling re-election campaign.
"Abuse of power is not a crime," the nation's former top law enforcement office argued.
‘Reality is hard to ignore’: CNN’s Chris Cuomo clashes with GOP congressman over Ukraine testimony
On Tuesday's edition of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," anchor Chris Cuomo traded barbs with Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK), who tried to claim there was no evidence Trump committed any wrongdoing in Ukraine — and was repeatedly smacked down.
"What this was was an opening statement with no cross-examination," said Mullin. "What I was told by my Republican colleagues, John Radcliffe tore this apart piece by piece in less than two minutes. We don't know this because it's not open and transparent."
"This is the investigation, though. Just to make it clear for the audience," said Cuomo. "You don't usually get, as a defendant, a team in there to help new an investigation. But Republicans are there and you asked him to take the job as a lifelong Republican."
